Plenty Elemental/FE/SK fans here (or not here it would seem lol) who love the original Master of Magic game probably already know about it but for those who don’t know or haven’t seen it in years I thought I’d spread the word on an awesome fan project that’s still somehow going and has utterly blown me away.
Master of Magic – Implode’s Multiplayer Edition is a brilliant opensource Java MoM engine rebuild that is far more closer to completion then any other MoM fan remake I've seen! It supports larger maps, up to 14 players (either Human or AI), and any modern windows resolution like HD 4K etc. The author Implode intends to expand on the original MoM experience but with minimal changes to the core gameplay and graphics that we all love.
Implode the creator of MoM-IME has been working on this project for over 12yrs now and isn’t getting much support these days so if you’re a huge Master of Magic fan and you’ve dreamed of playing against 13 other wizards in massive slaughterfest over 2 giant worlds in high resolution then get yours butts over to the sourceforge page and try out the latest demo and offer your support!
For anyone interested here’s a video I recorded of his game in 1080P (FYI it doesn’t go full screen until the map loads)...
Part 1 covers me exploring the starting an empire (fast forwarding through slow bits):
Part 2 covers me attacking some neighbours and starting a new game in the Myrran dark world:
NOTE: This video was made with the 2015 WIP 0.9.6.3 release. There have been multiple releases since adding things such as treasure rewards and hero items. In late 2016 Implode started work on the much anticipated enemy wizard global AI (AI build cities & armies, casts spells etc) so I can’t wait for that! Battle AI is functional however so you can still have a fun monster/treasure hunting RPG style game in the current build.
